Each vase consists of a pedestal with radiating leaves on a smooth, square base. The body has a wine-colored background and carries two antique-style ram-head grips and windings. Elegant and complex gold highlights adorn the wine-colored background, on the obverse they release a cartouche in which are painted a woman and a man in Renaissance attire. The reverse is respectively decorated with the attributes of music and war, these motifs are in gold relief and this unusual work denotes a fine quality of execution. The particularity of these vases is their wide and high openwork neck. The gilded and painted decorations are shiny and matte. Note under the base FA&C (?) 1835 . These vases are representative of their time, we will notice neo-classical reminiscences inherited from the still very close Empire (palmettes, sober proportions), and typical portraits of the Restoration inspired by an old moment of the old regime. (Troubadour style).
No accidents, normal age wear, on the gold of the base ("avenging rag from the maid" as the old merchants said). Hinges intact and rare and invisible lack of age of the gold highlights.
